Very nice trail run, but no so long and the road was disappeared and I don’t know how, I started climb just in forest up to some small peak. Everything was very overgrown by kind of long branch palm which is very often in Pingxi area, as we met on another side of valley with Eva (still would like write story about). After hard work I just hit trail which was familiar to me, I was there already one time and promised to me that I don’t want go it again, and now I was there. Very dense bushes on the top of ridge were difficult for moving, but the another challenge came soon – descent in dark valley around river stream. I guess nobody was here for very long time.
Finally reach road and turn right to the entry to 畝畝山 Mǔ mǔ shān. Nice path for running and I again left to some ugly trail for hour of exploring in bamboo. Then return back and rach cross of trail with picturesque bridge. Who could guess the one trail continue in the river, first did some circle in forest with monk house and very big hidden grave, then went to the river trail.
Wow, this valey trail was really forgotten. I just saw few flags but really no trail, I just walked between fern around the stream, it was really long and I was out of water already. Then climbed up to ridge 畝畝山 Mǔ mǔ shān 570 masl, very overgrown and it took my so much energy, no water and what worse I got many grass seeds which are pinned to your dress (don’t know name). It was everywhere on my short, socks, shoes hair. It begun really itchy and it drove me crazy. I could run down quickly and many times stoped for scramble of my thighs, so ugly. I went down to river valey and quickly find amazing bath and jump in and cleaned my body, but it helped just little bit.
I don’t know why, maybe because out of water already two hours and I didn’t have idear where exactly I am I continued on Shikongzi Historical Trail 石硿子步道 instead go out to Zhenkou station 圳口站. I run to the beautiful Shikongzi waterfall 石硿子瀑布 and more far behind, then decide rather go back to the trail entry 步道入口 Bùdào rùkǒu and then any station. Still so itchy my legs and again jumped to river and after run on the road reach Zhenkou station 圳口站 with bus No. 795. where is some rest place with coffe shop, price so high, but water machine with cold water was enough for me. Amazing drink after tree hours of hot run. Waited for bus and clean my short from the seeds. So tired after this, skin on my body so scratched, but happy be back. See you soon again Pingxi.
